Sagging skin on face

Over time skin elasticity and the amount of subcutaneous fat may decrease. These factors combine to result in lost skin firmness and sagging. This can be treated with medical aesthetic treatments, plastic surgery or collagen induction procedures, depending on the degree of laxity.

What causes the sagging of our skin?

The most visible signs of aging are on our face. The texture and quality of the skin changes. As part of the natural process, the amount of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that make the skin firm and smooth starts to decrease as early as our mid-twenties.

The skin becomes thinner, less elastic, saggy and drooping. The face loses its fullness and firmness. This has a major impact on the overall youthfulness of the face, which is characterized by well-defined contours, plump cheeks, chiseled jawline and chin. Fine lines and wrinkles develop which deepen with age and this can give a dull, tired appearance.

The aging process of the skin is affected by both intrinsic (internal) and extrinsic (external) factors. These include genetics, hormonal changes, lifestyle, stress and other environmental triggers that can have a detrimental effect on the quality of our skin. Among the latter, UV radiation and air pollution are especially harmful.

Unfortunately, we cannot completely avoid the aging process of the skin, but we can delay it with the right measures. With conscious skin care, a good lifestyle and well-timed professional treatments, we can postpone the first signs of aging by years and significantly slow down the process. There are also very effective medical aesthetic and surgical solutions to treat sagging skin.

COG Thread Lift COG Thread Lift

COG Thread Lift

The ideal alternative to surgical solutions for the initial sagging of the skin is the thread lift procedure. The threads used in the procedure are made of a special collagen-enhancing fiber, which triggers the natural renewal of the skin and, thanks to their special indented design, they allow the tissue to be gently pulled back. The result is an immediate lifting effect and the collagen produced by the stimulation is maintained for a longer period of time, so the thread lift not only provides an immediate effect but also ensures lasting firmness.

Morpheus8 microneedling with radiofrequency for skin tightening

An excellent anti-ageing method, combining microneedling with radiofrequency. During this method, the specialist makes micro-needle punctures on the skin, along which the radiofrequency energy evenly heats the deeper subcutaneous tissues, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin extensively, so the treatment builds on the skin's own regenerative processes. To achieve impressive results, it is recommended to use a series of treatments, the long-term effect of which is to tighten, plump and smooth fine lines.

CO2 laser peels, ablative skin resurfacing

For facial rejuvenation and to treat sagging skin, fractional carbon dioxide laser is an effective solution. We recommend this treatment especially for those who not only want a firmer complexion, but also want to improve the surface of the skin. It can also improve skin imperfections such as hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and scars. During the procedure, the laser hits the treated surface only at tiny points, micro-pixel by micro-pixel, triggering the renewal process in the deeper layers of the skin. The heat from the laser triggers the synthesis of collagen and elastin. The overall appearance of the skin is improved and a firmer, more even and smooth complexion is achieved.

Skinbooster treatments Skinbooster treatments

Skinbooster treatments

To treat the initial sagging of the skin and to prevent the progression of sagging, various skinbooster treatments are an excellent way to restore healthy skin function. They "boost" the skin's metabolism, which has been known to slow down with age, and also ensure a youthful appearance through the biorevitalizing effect.

Hyaluronic acid-based biorevitalizing fillers contain low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acids which, when injected into the skin, restore its youthful appearance and provide powerful hydration. The lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid enhances collagen and elastin production in the skin, which enables tissue restructuring. The high molecular weight hyaluronic acid is responsible for the volume, firmness and lift of our skin. Thanks to hyaluronic acid, cells are regenerated and damaged skin is renewed and becomes more dense. Contours and skin volume are enhanced.

These include treatments such as Juvéderm® Volite, Profhilo and Ejal 40. In addition, injectable biorevitalisation ingredients that specifically stimulate collagen production, such as the calcium hydroxylapatite-containing Radiesse, provide a prolonged effect that supports the production of healthy collagen in the skin over the long term, providing a natural and long-lasting solution.
